To Joanie, Jana & Pauline,
Know that you are being remembered by so many in our prayers to our heavenly father. You have my heartfelt condolences in the homegoing of Art. We go back a long way, & have made so many memories together. We waterskied at the Canal Ski-Kats for many years; we recently lost another of our members, Clayton Tervo. Only a few of the skiers remain today.
When I come up to the C.C. in the summer, I hope to see Joanie.
May our Lord give you His comfort and peace now & in the coming days.
Love, God's Peace, Mary Anne Storm, Lake Worth, FL
